the only way i think durr or anyone else in his position would have a chance is to make it blitz, and hope that the GM you're playing is a blitz fish (fish being relative to his normal time abilities) and you are a well above average speed chess player. or...... if durrr were to play with no piece advantage, but curtains had to play blind, in a G/45 scenario, that would be cool.
Curtains would give up very little playing blind. But don't tell durrrr.
Strong players actually pwn harder at blitz - skill differences become magnified - they still see most of what they would see anyway, and the weak player doesn't see much of anything. But don't tell durrrr.
